Just finishing building my system yesterday and there seems to be a problem with either the memory or motherboard. Using an Asus p8z68-v GEN3 mother board and 16GB (4x4) Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600mhz ram. Memtest shows that all my ram sticks are faulty but when i try them individually at different slots, they pass. the DRAM led light stays on and when i press the Mem ok button, it gets me as far as the bios but than crashes and freezes in the bios! Help ?
Post with one stick, go into your Bios and boost the Ram voltage. Turn off the PC, add a stick, post and then memtest with two. If you already have errors, you probably have a bad stick somewhere. If you don't, try again with a third stick,etc - add voltage as necessary until stable.
ok, i think i have isolated the problem. Slots A1 and A2 on my motherboard seems to be at fault. This is because when i place my Ram into slots B1 or B2, my system is able to post and memtest shows no errors - opposite applies for the A slots thus i think my ram is not the problem. Anybody know what's causing the first 2 DIMM slots to not work?
